When is still not fully fleshed out yet, but I'm trying to prevent the panicked OMG-WE'RE-MOVING-TOMORROW induced anger, arguments and throwing things in garbage bags extravaganza.
I wish it was earlier than May. But at the moment we're still moving after I graduate. At 23. For my Bachelors. God, I suck.
Anyway! We started packing using USPS boxes we had around the apartment, and other boxes from various deliveries and Christmas presents. I packed up the books we aren't going to be reading before we move, old textbooks and other random crap. We have a lot of books. And a lot of random crap. Not only will we be packing over the next few months, but we will also be cleaning out stuff and throwing away/donating other things we don't need/use/want. Or I can give it away here! Woo!
After I had packed up all the books, Adam decided to rearrange the living room. Because now he didn't have to dismantle the shelves and move all the books himself. In the process, we killed a shelf.
A moment of silence for that brave shelf that has been with me for four years.
So our living room went from this:
I really like the new arrangement, it's more open and a better use of space. And we finally can sit in the papasan chair, because it's not behind the futon any more, yay!! However, the cushion in it sucks. A LOT. So if anyone knows where to get one/how to make one, please let me know! Or, if you have one you don't want anymore that is bigger than this one, that would be acceptable too. I can't really curl up in this smaller one very well, but I LOVE this kind of chair. (Also, Dad, you know you want to give me the purplish-red chair in the living room, you know you do!)
The fun part of this story is that the other night, my wonderful hubby was making be dinner because he's awesome like that. While he was doing that, I was in a packing mood so I started packing some more boxes. I decided to pack the thing(s) I wanted to be sure not to forget.
So I packed my husband!
I'm so silly. And weird.
